3226  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock 2010 (download) on: May 17, 2011, 06:07:02 PM
Thank you, thank you, thank you this application is so useful and we really appreciate all the work you've put into it.

I read where one want to improve on the calendar, but I didn't see where this was mentioned. I found a small problem on multiple monitors with the calendar. If you have the start menu moved to a monitor that is not your primary the calendar will open up on the primary monitor in the correct position. I found that this to be the case for all three out of four of the positions of the start menu (top, bottom, and left) with the exception being on the right side. It displays correctly.

I'm not sure if its possible, but I like the Windows 7 calendar that is built into the default clock. It would be nice if you could have a option to display that one instead of the T-Clock one.

Thank you for your continued effort of my making a part of my daily routine better.
Well thank you, it's always nice to know folks are enjoy T-Clock.

On the non-primary monitor bugg. I'm not sure if I can fix that ... I've always been under the impression that the start menu/taskbar is supposed to be on the primary monitor (which is adjustable). That and the dialogs are all supposed to be positioning themselves in relation to the clocks position (by design). But do please clarify if I'm off in the weeds ... I do do that sometimes... smiley

Windows 7 calendar from default clock is quite an elusive little bugger. I have made several attempts at finding out how to hook and launch it but so far to no avail. I typically only quit trying after I win ... But I occasionally do have to regroup which can take some time.

yeah actually it would be nice if we had some options for calendar, like to display t-clock one, windows one, or a custom exe.

Hay! ...That is an interesting idea!

Thanks for the link - I Just love this part:
Quote
Now since man is naturally inclined to avoid pain -- and since labor is pain in itself -- it follows that men will resort to plunder whenever plunder is easier than work. History shows this quite clearly. And under these conditions, neither religion nor morality can stop it.

When, then, does plunder stop? It stops when it becomes more painful and more dangerous than labor.

It is evident, then, that the proper purpose of law is to use the power of its collective force to stop this fatal tendency to plunder instead of to work. All the measures of the law should protect property and punish plunder.

Plunder stops when it becomes more painful and more dangerous than labor.

Now that's beautifully simple and quite clear ... I think I'll have it engraved on my gun.  cheesy

Yeah. It's not one bit worth the snaffle.

It just occurred to me... The cost of people not being able to properly read/write in cursive will be high as illiterate pharmacists try to decipher doctors' scribblings and end up poisoning people!

Not really, print is harder to completely butcher. So if doctors drop cursive it should actually help the situation.

When I was younger I had a fairly nice signature, now arthritis has turned it into a scrawl. ...I haven't written in cursive in so long I've actually forgotten some of the letters.

3234  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / SEO Say What?!? on: May 16, 2011, 05:54:56 PM
Okay... So I was going through me spam the other day and ran across one I really couldn't get my head around. So I thought I'd share it:
Quote from: Spam
Dear Webmaster,

I came across your website http://www.stoicjoker.com and found it relevant with our industry. I feel that exchanging links would be a beneficial option for both of us. After getting your response I will add your information in the best category on the resource page here Some Roofing Company in Arizona...com/resources/index.html. If you are interested, please post the following information on your website:

Title: Arizona Roofing
Description: If you are in need of Arizona roofing, please give the experts over at [Removed] a call today.

I appreciate your attention and wish you great online business.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Note: If you would not like to receive any further communications from me, simply respond to this email with Remove as the subject.

Now what possible part of my site could they have "found it relevant with our industry"? Is this some new trend, trick, trap, or just SEOs Gone Wild?

I've never really been much on horses or art ... But those are cool!

Is there a back story/website for those? I know some people that may be interested in one of them.

WoW! ...Extortion Much?

Thanks for the warning!

I don't think it's extortion even if it is a jive move on their part. The do have this proviso:

Quote
You must extend your subscription to PC Lock or contact customer service to gain access to your encrypted files

I doubt they'd refuse to let you in at all. (Probably be illegal for them to do that anyway.) I'm guessing they'll issue you a time-limited key to get your stuff decrypted and do an uninstall if you call. But likely not before they first subjected you to a high pressure sales pitch to extend your subscription. Probably offer it on a sliding discount scale depending upon your degree of resistance too. ("OK Bud, this is our 25th and absolute final offer. And this time we really mean it!"  mrgreen)

I know. But I kinda like to calls'em like I sees'em ... And if you or I pulled some shit like that on a street corner, minus the lawyers and the letterhead ... They'ed be arresting us for what? Starts with an E...

If I recall correctly, this only happened with messages originating from an AOL account.
Gotta love those nested headers, Clicking open attachment over and over for each time its been forwarded (usually about 50) ... Kinda hard to believe a mess like that can manage to not be corrupt really.

Sorry if you were trying to be kind about that little detail, but it's a pet peeve of mine. smiley
3238  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Batteries charged?...Away we go!!! on: May 16, 2011, 12:00:11 PM
Ok, on-topic again:
I wonder how far you could get on a battery charge. As the construction does not have (too) much weight to push around, my guesstimate would be 2 or 3 miles?

I'd think much higher than that. The devices are all (geared for) torque to start with (hence the low top speed). So dragging some guy along as apposed to a screw. *Shrug* 5 -10 miles if it's fairly flat.

^^^Me Too^^^

Also get a short USB cable so you don't get stuck with a metal box (the computer) between the adapter and the router. I've seen that type of thing (metal desk/appliances/old wall with lead paint) sink a deployment once or twice.
3241  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Help with new computer build on: May 16, 2011, 11:34:11 AM
My mantra is always: "Wire if you can. Wifi if you must."

+1,000


On a related subject: Does anybody have any personal experience with the most recent generation of hub-adapters that use your wall's power lines? I've heard mostly good things about them. About the only knock on them i've heard was their relative high cost compared to other alternative.

They're not getting any cheaper ... But they are a great alternative, I'm actually a huge fan of PowerLine networking. Wiring quality in the building can be an issue, but retightening the grounds in the breaker panel frequently resolve most issues of that kind.

I'd go PL over WiFi every time if I could get away with it.
3242  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: A real bicycle that you can grow?...from nylon? on: May 16, 2011, 07:11:10 AM
This is definitely interesting, though nylon is a poor material for a bike. Those bearings may look cool, but they must make for horrendous rolling resistance.

Excellent point. I missed it in the initial read (ok skim). Perhaps that is why they're so large in the hopes that they'll last more than a week.

Are schools so gobsmack stupid?

Yes. And don't forget the students.

No child left behind! Teach them nothing and none of them will go anywhere, guaranteeing no child gets left behind...

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Give 'em School House Rock, and let 'em sink.

Want to start a war? Try introducing a modest amount of "discipline" in schools. Let the blood letting begin~!

My education was clearly inferior, as proven by my mistaken belief that education and educational principles should improve and advance. Man... Was I wrong...

tongue

+1 "Studying" for a test is not educating, it's running the kids through a cattle-chute in the hopes of hitting high numbers.
3245  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Batteries charged?...Away we go!!! on: May 15, 2011, 09:50:20 AM
Low profile/visibility and a top speed of 18.6 MPH ... Sounds like suicide to me. Besides in that position (speaking of suicidal behavior) texting while driving is near impossible, so it'll never catch on.

Other than that it's a rather clever idea.

3247  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Apple Gets a Bugg of its very own :) on: May 12, 2011, 06:53:41 PM
So I ran across this and just had to laugh, as it seems that some enterprising soul has ported a ScareWare hijack over to OSX (I've been giggling for days).

Intego warns of rare Mac scareware
and
Mac OS X crimeware kit found on underground forums

The 2nd one referrs to this particular little bugg as (Think Different...) "CrimeWare" (HA!) As if Just because its infesting a Mac it's suddenly a crime?!? Perhaps Buggering a Virgin is supposed to be worse or something *Shrug* But snApple ain't no virgin.

I really gotta find that SouthPark episode.

Can't see why a UK Phone would have any info for Canadian towers (or any other country for that matter). Surely it just looks at what is there? When I visited Niagara it jumped on to Bell and my carrier doesn't even have an arrangement with Bell!

Me either, but before the update the PM's phone completely ignored the tower's existence, after the update it was wide open running. *Shrug* So it just one of those things I mentally file away to try and verify later.
